    Whatever good he may do policy wise is far outweighed by the POS he is as a human being.

    We should all thank him that as the leader of the free world he has normalized that it’s ok to grab them by the p*ssy when you’re rich, make fun of the disabled and unattractive (“that face”) , call allied nations shitholes and give derogatory, infantile nicknames to his political enemies foreign and domestic, all the while lying and making stuff up as it fits the moment.

    But my 401k is up so, hey, it’s ok .

    The media is now labelling Trump as a "jerk" and moving away from mental issues per CNN. It's like they never found a jerk in NYC before. Some people really need to come down from their ivory towers.

    Now, I think most of us know you can be both a jerk and have mental issues. Trump is proving it everyday.

    Don't worry, I'm sure the Norwegian immigrants will arrive loaded down with rare Earth minerals. That's why they're so desirable, right?

    I keep hearing that we want only wand qualified, exceptional, etc. immigrants. But, what does that mean? there already is a program for exceptional immigration.

    Often, new immigrants perform blue collar or other jobs that others do not want while they get adjusted in this country .
    As for TPS, has anyone calculated the effect on the economy of deporting hundreds of thousands of Haitians and El Salvadorans? Or, the effect on the United States citizens of deporting parents of children born here?

    Kicking people out because "it is the law" may not be the smartest thing to do for our country, let alone heartless to the people deported.

    Meanwhile, there is no rational basis for canceling TPS for Haitians, and the President's comments might support challenges to the changes of the rules as racially motivated.

    Oh come on, you are only allowed to have one issue at a time. If he has mental issues, it clearly means he didn't collude with Russia and if he is a jerk, it clearly means he never had mental issues. The Venn diagram of jerk, people with mental problems, and those that would collude with foreign governments is not allowed to have overlap.

    I served in Africa, with and around various armed forces of the host nation. I saw many problems and would classify a lot of the places I saw, a shit hole. Many of them wished they had the opportunity to immigrate to the US. I can speculate with some confidence that some would be upset by Trump’s comment - even though they would also agree with him.

    Exactly. What is the logic of not wanting people from "shitholes?". That's the basic premise of immigration to America.

    The problem is that, in context, he was talking about the people.

    Speaking of Norway. Compared with Norway the U.S. is the relative sh*thole.

    Lindsey Graham, who is not a "lib," said he heard the comment and chastised Trump for it. What is sad is that a segment of so called conservatives in dc and the media would accept his statement, in the context of what Trump meant when he made the comments, as defensible.

    Since the Chinese are allowed to “grease palms”, and US corporations are not, what do you expect? Both companies will help develop resources, but one company gives a little something extra to help an official make their decision. Which company will get chosen, especially when the official’s salary sucks and this something extra will help out?


    When US companies do pay a bribe to get something done, they get fined and drug through the wringer for violating anti bribery laws. So it’s not surprising that China is doing better in certain parts of the world since it isn’t a level playing field.

    People all over the world, including friendly countries became "unglued." POTUS is being rightly criticized for undermining the United States' leadership role and respect throughout the world.

    I am not a liberal so don't address me as such. I simply consider myself a decent human being who expects a president to try to act like one instead of being the shithead that he is.
